Royal HaskoningDHV provides services that cover the whole flood risk management cycle, from concept to feasibility, impact assessments, design, tender process, site supervision and operation and maintenance. Specific products are: integrated flood risk management plans, safety level and flood risk assessments, hydraulic & hydrological modelling, design of structural measures, monitoring and early warning measures, environmental and social impact assessments.The need for an integrated approach was again illustrated by recent disasters as caused by the ‘Asia tsunami’ (2004), hurricane Katrina in the USA (2005) and the Thailand flooding (2011). The affected countries were not prepared, resulting in human suffering, massive losses of lives and economic value and social disruption. Damages tend to be highest in delta areas, where often both population and economic value are concentrated.
Flood risk reduction in delta areas should focus on cities, but should include as well the remaining wetlands of high ecological value. As a result of climate change, deforestation and erosion, flooding is no longer concentrated in the ‘traditional’ flood-prone areas. This forces us to screen continuously, anticipate better, look across borders, and widen project and planning horizons. Becoming fully prepared in this complex matter requires teamwork involving the client, professionals and stakeholders.
We can offer you an integrated flood risk solution, using our knowledge, experience and network. We work worldwide and we master the techniques and state of the art. We work with a regional focus, from local offices and local companies and institutions. We know the setting, country specifics and context - your neighbours. We work with internationally renowned water research institutes and universities. Last but not least, we are up-to-date with the latest developments in research and innovations. Our integrated approach with involvement of international and local expertise guarantees continuity in your projects, no matter if you are a private company or public government.
